ROASTED GROUNDHOG RECIPE:
Mrs. Dash seasoning
Salt and pepper
Carrots (peeled and sliced)
Water or broth of choice
Rub the skinned ground hog with olive oil. Try not to cry as you think about how he could be foretelling spring instead of being the main attraction at dinner. Sprinkle seasonings on him and place in a roasting pan. Place the onions, potatoes, and carrots around the groundhog. Add a cup of water or broth to the roasting pan. Cover and bake in a slow oven (275-300 degrees) until groundhog is tender and vegetables are done, adding more water/broth as needed.
Serve on a platter, making sure not to tell the kids they’re eating Punxsutawney Phil’s cousin. And if the roast is tough, try a slow cooker next time … or maybe even a roast beef disguised as a groundhog.
